Subject: Not true, after all: RE: Friday humor: Al Gore, former VP, now a restauranteur

Alas, it was a good story while it lasted.  But it's been corrected:

" CORRECTION: Al Gore Restaurateur Story Withdrawn
The Nov. 29 LAGOS, Nigeria, story headlined ``Al Gore  says now
restaurateur in Tennessee'' is wrong and is withdrawn. The story was based
on an erroneous hearing of Gore's remarks.According to a transcript
provided by a representative for Gore, the former vice president said ``...
we stopped at a little family restaurant in Tennessee. We were eating there
by ourselves. It was a low-cost restaurant called Shoney's.''There will be
no substitute story. "     
Too bad, I has some fun plans for that little morsel in my Dubya's Dayly
Diary.
